Since a lot of the things I create require a lot of prep work I thought I would share a little behind the scenes of my creativity. My room is very messy but I often find inspiration in things lying around so I don’t like to tidy up too much. So many times I’ll see this lying next to that and the bulb goes off in my head 🙂 Maybe you’ll see something that inspires you…the possibilities are endless! Let’s go on a tour…
And here are a couple of the bird houses I’ve finished…
Finally, on a totally unrelated subject, here is a picture of my husband Kevin being all Sinister McSneaky with his new mustache – LOL
Until next time – make sure to take time to create something every day!
After a long creative drought, the Tim workshops got my juices flowing again! Here are just a few of the projects I’ve been working on since class.
I was inspired by a Suzi Blu video (see my videos) to create some fairy jars…here are just some I did (pardon the flash on the photos, but you get the general idea)
Then I was inspired by a project in an Archivers flyer and some vintage vases I got at World’s Market to make these for the 4th of July…I’ll be sad to take them down but I have to make way for all my fall decorations!
This weekend I am working on my altered art bird houses. Watch for more pictures!
I have been a busy little bee this summer. It started with Tim Holtz coming to a local stamp store and taking two of his workshops. It was so great to meet him and absorb some of his creative mojo. It’s been a dream to take some one of his classes, now I want to take one his cruises!
Here I am with Tim!
I took the “Configuration of Your Imagination” and “Patchwork Pandemonium” classes. I learned so much, it was a blast. If you ever get a chance to take his workshops – do it!!
Here are the projects I made.
My Patchwork Pandemonium
Now that Tim has me all inspired, I am working on creating Fairy Jars and Birdhouses. Stay tuned for pictures 🙂 And as Tim says, Enjoy the Journey!
